    iEatBrainz doesn't work with Leopard. For those uninformed, iEatBrainz is a program that listens to the first few seconds of your mp3s, matches that to a user-submitted database, and fills in the missing artist/album/etcetc tags for you.

    Anyone got any alternatives or fixes?

    Hey man, I've been looking for an alternative too. Hopefully a good one come out of this thread. But on another note, using Ieatbrainz, is there a way to set it to only get the album tag? I have all of my songs tagged with the correct title and artist, but i want to fill in the correct album names for all of my songs, any ideas?

    Not talking about artwork.

    I haven't been able to do this. If just looking for an album, use the iTunes Music Store as a resource since you already know the artist, title, and how the song goes.

    iEatBrainz Universal Build availlable

    Hello everyone,

    I have managed to build iEatBrainz as a universal application. It works fine on my intel macbook with 10.4 and users has reported that it works like a charm on 10.5 (Leopard) too.

    Get it here:

    Does anyone know of an application like this?

    This is exactly what I need and now that I've found it, it's gone.

    Anyone know of anything else?

    One.

    It opens with iTunes, and I can't see a way to disable that. It's not a huge problem, but when you're not going to be using it, it's annoying to have it open.

    So once it is open you can't close it?

    You can close it either from the menubar, or the program itself. It would just be nice if there was an option to disable it opening with iTunes, as nine times out of 10, I don't want it open.

    two things...

    1 Musicbrainz Picard is free and the same as ieatbrainz
    2 if you ever need an alternative to something go to alternativeto.net (its how i found musicbrainz in the first place.)

    Don't "TuneUp"

    TuneUp is a jealous SOB. :mad: Download the demo and it grabs onto iTunes with claws. You cannot just delete it. You end up searching the internet to find out how to remove it surgically. :mad::mad: After I finally got rid of that monster I never want to see it again, no matter what wonderful features it comes up with.
